New BeB Purchases + Tag

(Grab your Starbucks and have a glamorous Monday!)

(via The Sartorialist)

Welcome back from the weekend, gang! Hope this post finds you well and rested on this Monday morning!

This was a pretty busy weekend for me. I had to travel a couple hours this weekend for class. As you know, I'm currently getting my master's and for this particular class we had to all meet in one location. Normally, the classes are broadcast to various sites. It was actually quite enjoyable!

 (via we heart it)

Yesterday I went to church and then went out with Dana for a while. We did a little browsing and shopping- perfect for a rainy day in VA.

Here are a few things I picked up during my outing!


I picked up this set of four OPI minis in the Swiss Collection (Irre-Swiss-Ables).

(The colors: Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous, Yodel Me on My Cell, Color So Hot It Berns and Top Coat)


I've been craving a really great taupe polish lately and found it yesterday, too, at the same store.

 (OPI 'Over the Taupe' from the Brights Collection)


Do you love the dollar section at Target as much as I do? Look at these darling 'Fancy Nancy' stickers I picked up yesterday! They're going to be the perfect touch for cards that I send!

(I ended up getting 2 packs of each!)


Jaclyn from Faith Hope and a Little Love tagged me in another round of '8 Questions.' What better way to start this week than with some random facts? Jaclyn is fairly new to the blogging world, and I would love for you all to go over and visit her!


1. If you could go back to school, without money being a factor in your decision, what would you study?

Ok, I'm going to answer this question like this...If I could leave my house tomorrow and go to any job in the world it would be....

(Model Snejana Onopka as Anna Wintour)

....magazine editor. You all know there is no one that loves fashion and photography more than this girl!

My second choice? Professional blogger, of course.


2. Cats or dogs?

I answered this one before. Clearly, dogs. Yorkies to be exact!

(via we heart it)

3. How many pairs of shoes do you own, and which ones are you absolute favorite?

I'm not even gonna go there. I own a lot, let's just leave it at that. Some of my favorites....

These are so flattering! And the bow?? Eeee!

I've had these red slingbacks since high school. They are absolutely my favorite shoes ever.

I found these 'Burberry' plaid pumps at Rack Room Shoes. Aren't they adorable?

The cutest thing I've ever seen at Wet Seal! I wore these with a black, strapless dress back in January to a school gala.

I think everyone needs some leopard-print shoes. These flats are so versatile, I wish I'd bought  two pairs for the price!

My favorite 'fancy' shoes. The color, the stones, the heel, everything is just perfection.


4. What’s in your purse – right now?

On the outside....

New purse from TJ Maxx in my favorite color right now- taupe!

On the inside....

Lots of pink, are you surprised?

From top, clockwise:
Leather Coach bag that I use for tons of things- Tide Pen, mini hair brush, bobby-pins, etc.
Vera Bradley wallet
Vera Bradley case that I use for my lipgloss, compact, etc.
Change purse from Anthropologie
Vera Bradley sunglass case
Baekgaard leather envelope that I use for coupons


5. Be honest: How many times a day do you check Facebook?

Not as much as I used to! Maybe a couple times a day?

(via we heart it)

6. What is the farthest place you’ve traveled outside of your hometown, and why?

My family took a cruise to Jamaica several years ago, I think that's the farthest....

(via Cherry Blossom Girl)


7. If you had to limit your beauty routine down to only 2 things, what would you keep?

Mascara and red lipstick.

(via we heart it)

8. What is your favorite quote?

 I have lots of quotes that I love, there isn't one that I love more than the other. This SATC quote is especially a favorite at this point in my life, though....


Now I'm tagging these ladies:

Sarah at Bright Lights, My City
Sophia at Kept Prep at the Seashore
Tam at Tam's Thoughts

With these questions:

1. Favorite kind of weather?
2. Favorite nail polish (include a picture, please!)
3. What made you decide to start your blog?
4. Favorite city that you've visited (US or International)
5. Tell us something you collect.
6. Favorite dessert?
7. How old were you when you started 'dating?'
8. How would you describe your style?

I hope you'll play along girlies!!


Happy Monday, everyone! Let me know how your weekend went!

Cute shoes!!

Lacey in the City said...

Happy Monday to you, darling!!! Life is finally starting to settle into a somewhat normal state here in NY, but you're right, this time of year just always feels crazy busy. I will never complain too much about being busy though, because I'd rather that than the alternative. I love the "Over the Taupe" and also love the minis...if I could change my profession I would want to be a nail polish color namer! Haha!

Have a wonderful day today, and if it's rainy there like it is in New York, stay dry, my dear!!


Jamie said...

I agree, EVERYONE should have a pair of leopard print shoes. It's a necessity and makes you feel sassy when you're kicking around in them :)
Happy monday

Steph @ Professors_Wife said...

I love the nail polish! Taupe is so nice... and I hear John Legend playing... LOVE HIM!
I'm rocking a deep navy blue polish as of late - it's not quite goth, but not quite girly... just perfect!
